Everton boss Ronald Koeman says that Davy Klaassen – and Sandro Ramirez – needs time to adapt to the Premier League after his big-money move from Ajax in the summer.
The 24 year old was captain of his former club, and led them out in the Europa League final last season leading to many Everton fans believing we had signed the finished article.
Koeman, however, sees it differently, and quite rightly points out that the Dutch League is not at the same level of speed or physicality of the Premier League.
He said, “He needs time.
“He is okay. He is intelligent on the ball. He can improve in fitness and he can improve physically in battles in the midfield.
“That is what he needs to learn and improve but that is normal. The Dutch league is not the Premier League and the boy gets time for that. It is all about the player himself. It is the same question for other young players.
“It is for players like Sandro Ramirez to keep quiet and keep patience. He will come good because I don’t have any doubts as to the quality of the player.”
